I am not sure why it was necessary to give some assclown student with a can of spray paint 1000x the exposure he would have otherwise had.

Fair point, but perhaps it is a teachable moment for them if it gets back to them how silly they are being.

I mean literally that thing was up last night as MU is ready to play Nova with both teams nationally ranked....if they are going to be so brazen in their approach, magnify it so others can give them the feedback they should garner.

I took this as more of a joke than a critique of Wojo. What makes you think this is a jab at Wojo?

Oh, I think it was a jab, playing into the criticism that he has no game plans other than to shoot the ball into the basket.
Have some patience, FFS.

It would’ve actually been a pretty good joke if the stick figure was wearing a “0” jersey.  Regardless, that’s what I took the sign as:  A joke.  Some folks need to lighten up and not get so offended when their unicorn is poked fun at.

Lavall Jordan got T'd up going into halftime of the game....if Markus hits both of the FTs to start the 2nd half, MU wins the game.

There was still an entire half of basketball left.  If he hits them perhaps MU plays differently or Butler plays differently. Two first half free throws didn't materially change the outcome of the game with 20 more minutes left.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Nojos see no problem in it, of course. 

I would have preferred if they just had a Verdict Is In banner.

I think Chick characterized most of our frustrations well, but Gen Z is getting replaced by "iGen?"  I am currently working on a deal with a local University and the Bursar told me their Provost has the staff reading a book about the iGen.  According to him, Rocky's Gen Z kids look like the Greatest Generation in comparison.  Pampered, poor communicators (unless it's social media), etc.  I've got to get a copy of the book to read it.

My kids are split.  One Millennial and one Z Gen (I think).  Both act more like Baby Boomers, but I like them anyway.

If MU hit a third of their open shots in the beginning of the Nova game, it would have been a significantly different game.  I think Nova is the 4th-5th team in the league.  The Hall is very strong, and Creighton can be scary good at times.  I look forward to seeing MU go up against either Butler or Nova in the BEast Tournament.

PS:  If the kid that put up that poor excuse of a sheet is iGen, he's already sent a text to Mommy saying he needs new sheets because the dry cleaners ruined this one after the housecleaners sent it in.

Gen Z is the same as iGen.

And any resource that starts out by calling them pampered and poor communicators probably needs to be discounted.

I have an iGen in the house....the list of characteristics is pretty spot on in general terms.


Dr. Twenge lists several characteristics of iGen’ers that differentiate them (iGen) from their parents and older siblings. A partial list that follows shows that iGen’ers typically are:

  • much more tolerant of others, different races and cultures, sexual orientations;
  • more cautious and averse to taking risks;
  • growing up more slowly, not wanting to stay home alone, manage their own money, etc.;
  • aware and concerned about an economy shaped by income inequality;
  • less likely to drink alcohol or take drugs in high school;
  • less likely to attend church;
  • more likely to think for themselves and not believe authority figures in church or government;
  • delaying having serious romantic relationships;
  • experiencing fewer teen pregnancies;
  • spending less time in shopping malls;
  • less likely to go see a movie;
  • not inclined as much to run away
  • not all that interested in getting a driver’s license right away (one of four iGen’ers do not have a license by the time they graduate from high school);
  • less interested in face-to-face contact with others, preferring instead to connect via smartphones;
  • less interested in reading books, magazines or newspapers;
  • spending more time playing computer games
  • less experienced in having an after-school or summer job and earning money while in high school;
  • feeling more depressed than those in prior generations;
  • feeling lonely and not needed;
  • susceptible to higher suicide rates;
  • more supervised and protected while growing up;
  • spending enormous amounts of time using social media and smart phones; sometimes well into the early hours of the morning; and,

I provided the article and the traits from the good doctor...it was a straight copy and paste, nothing more. 



"At the end of her iGEN book, Dr. Twenge writes that iGen’ers “are scared, maybe even terrified. Growing up slowly, raised to value safety and frightened by the implications of income inequality, they have come to adolescence in a time when their primary social activity is staring at a small rectangular screen that can like them or reject them. The devices they hold in their hands have both extended their childhoods and isolated them from true human interaction. As a result, they are both the physically safest generation and most mentally fragile…If they can shake themselves free of the constant clutch of their phones and shrug off the heavy cloak of their fear, they can still fly. And the rest of us will be there, cheering them on.”

  • More likely to put up signs in their dorm room demanding the school fire the coach of their 2nd place team.
  • More likely to spray paint bed sheets and hang them outside their independent living apartments which publicly belittles their coach in bullet point 1.
